H20 For Elasticity of The Skin

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

I've heard that drinking an extra cup of water for every 25 lbs your over [in addition to the 8 cups] will help with lose skin. Personally, the older you get the more important this information is... emoticon emoticon

    I guess for me that would only be 13 8 oz cups of water ... subtract your goal weight from what you weigh, then divide the remainder by 25 ... it's really not that much more.

    I thought that drinking more water was better but found out the hard way that too much water can be dangerous. I decided that every time I got up from my desk I would drink some water. I figured in one day I had consumed over 2 gallons of water! The day after I was feeling shaky, jittery - like I had consumed straight caffeine. I found out that I had inadvertantly flushed all the potasium (and other important nutrients) from my body. I now keep my consumption to no more than 10 cups a day. Your body does get used to all the extra water so you don't have to be in the bathroom all the time, too.

    Massage helps too .. get a good quality massage oil and gently massage areas where the skin is loose. It really does work!

    Sounds interesting but I am running to the bathroom constantly now trying to get in the 8 glasses a day. Don't know if I could handle more. emoticon
